Update: Richard has messaged me asking to update my review, no problem!

Original Review : 1* Comments: "Rude"

New Review:

We had two main issues with Richard.

1) Dogs - My profile states I have two dogs, on the phone with him I confirmed we have two dogs, the listing says case by case basis so I assume this is OK for now.

Well, no. Once we're in the apartment, Richard's answers regarding our dogs now included "No.", "why have dogs", and suggests to get rid of *at least* 1. Obviously, this is absurd to any pet owner and cruel.

We offered pet security deposit, to provide references or meeting with them so the landlord or agency can feel confident in their behavior/size/etc. This is all in my profile and again, I mentioned directly to him before meeting him.

2) Then he moves the argument to rent amount - neither of us question the amount or try to bargain or something, so I'm not sure why he brought it up in the aggressive manner he did.

On top of my husbands salary - I had graduated with a masters 3 days earlier, and was in the middle of a job offer. I told him this, but its a solid no again.

I understand my husbands salary alone is not enough for the x40 rent "rule". So I say we pay more than this apartment's listed rent for the last 6 years and its been on time, and we can provide landlord references for this. Still, no.

I can provide a gaurantor, who makes over the 80x rule. Richard laughs at us.

We say we can provide statements proving credit and a solid amount in our accounts but he says he is not interested. He continues to laugh and say no to us.

I don't know why I tried to offer reasonable solutions to anything when he was clearly just a rude person but I was repeatedly insulted.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Richard Keledjian Responded:
Qualifying for an apartment has many requirements. I did not intend on being rude, simply stating that some requirements were not met during this deal. There was nothing against you and I was just doing my job by saying that your deal did not meet the qualifications for the apartment. I'm sorry that you were not happy with the verdict, but we all did what we could for the application process. Thank you.

Richard was so kind, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Astoria and the building he showed me. Though the place didn't work out, I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

I recently rented an apartment through Richard. He is honest and responsive and answered all of my questions timely. The pictures of the apartment that were posted looked like the actual apartment. This was my first time using a broker and I was not disappointed.I would highly recommend using Richard when looking for an apartment in Astoria.

He is responsive to my first email but not the follow-up email. He is also not very considerate when I bring up different considerations and questions.

I'm sorry if you were unhappy with the deal, but I did everything I could. I did not have any listings that matched what you were looking for. I apologize that it didn't work out. Thank you.

I found Richard through NakedApts and can't say enough good things. Richard was helpful and responsive and showed me exactly the type of apartments I was looking for. He has well-established relationships with local landlords and it was clear his focus was on ensuring I and the landlords would be happy, rather than making a quick deal. After I moved in, he followed up to see if I had any problems and when I mentioned a few repair issues he got them resolved for me right away. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for an apt in Astoria.

Richard answered to the inquiry and promptly scheduled a viewing. I immediately knew I would like to apply for the apartment and Richard was able to do that same day-even though it was much after regular business hours. He helped through the whole process, right up until I had the keys in my hands, making this apt search less stressful.

Richard gave us great help on learning the area around our apartment. He was very responsive and willing to meet when we had the free time and was in no way pushy about seeing the apartment. He showed us some major features around the place, but really allowed us to just walk through and see the place how we would want it.

The thing I appreciated the most was how many pictures Richard posted of the apartment and how accurate the pictures were. He did not use any generic shots or try to fool us about what type of condition the apartment was in. The pictures depicted exactly what we saw when we visited the apartment. He also provided many different shots to get a great feel for the size of the apartment. Another great thing Richard did was he used his iPad in the apartment to show us around the area and give us a tour of the different features we can expect. Small things like pointing out where the grocery store or laundromat are can really help when you aren't extremely familiar with the area.

I would definitely recommend using Richard if he has a place you like and you can trust the images that are posted. Thank you Richard for a great experience in finding an apartment!

Although our deal didn't work out, Richard was extremely professional, prompt, and accommodating. I would highly recommend him. Plus, his property photos and listing info were dead-on accurate.
